We detailed the importance of using sunscreen in a previous post here. Everyone should be protecting themselves from the harsh sun. There are, however, certain suncreens that we want to alert our readers to — Spray-on Sunscreens. These are the ones usually found in metal bottles with a mist spray applicator. Why do many people use them? It’s because they are easy and fast to apply on with minimal mess involved. Their are risks involved though… (more…)

skin-cancer-sunburn-sunscreen-us-general-surgeon-warningReleased yesterday, U.S. Surgeon General Boris Lushniak issued a public warning that skin cancer is a “major public health problem” and issued an immediate call to prevent the disease. His report also stated that skin cancer in the United States, unlike many other cancers, continues to rise with about 5 million new cases annually. Melanoma figures were released too with around 63,000 people developing this deadliest form of skin cancer each year and 9,000 people dying from it.
Much of the rise is a result of people getting too much exposure to indoor and outdoor UV light. (more…)

nighttime-skin-care-routine-tips-men-womenTaking care of your skin right before you go to bed is just as important as tending to your skin care needs during your morning routine. Keep in mind that when you fall peacefully asleep for the next eight hours of your life, your skin has plenty of time to heal itself and absorb all the skincare nutrients that you smother on right before sleeping.

TwinLuxe recommends applying the Booster Serum and the Soothing Face Balm (alternate between these two products every other night) as the preferred nighttime skin care treatment, for men and women. These two products are packed with high performance moisturization and anti-inflammatory ingredients, which help repair and soothe skin leaving it ready to face whatever environmental factors it must overcome the next day.  You’ll notice that when you wash your face the next morning (more…)

easy-simple-skin-care-tips-for-menTired of breakouts, pimples, and bad skin?  Below are 6 simple tips to help you achieve a great complexion:


1. Wash your face in the morning and nights – Wash your face to get rid of any oil accumulation in your pores after you wake up and right before you go to bed.  This will minimize the chances of acne breakouts.  Imagine going to bed with a greasy face…you’ll be smearing all that oil onto your pillow case night after night.


2. Wash your pillow case weekly – Don’t wait several weeks to wash your pillow case.  Make it a habit to wash your pillow case at least weekly.  This will ensure your face doesn’t encounter an oily pillow case, especially even more so if you use hair styling products such as hair gel, wax, or paste.  Assuming you take your showers in the morning, using these types of hair styling products (more…)

Trucker-driver-sunscreen-damage-28-yearsThis is an old topic but one of significance importance.  It’s a study that was released last year by Northwestern University and findings published in the New England Journal of Medicine about a 69 year-old male trucker (pictured below) who drove his truck for 28 years.


As you can see from the picture (photo credit: New England Journal of Medicine), the man’s left-side face is significantly more aged than his right-side.


Note that during his treks cross country hauling cargo, this man’s left-side face was exposed significantly more to sunshine while driving.  Photos like this make it very convincing that the left-side accelerated skin damage was a result of excessive UV sunray exposure as the trucker said he never used face sunscreen and his windows were not tinted.

Like most working professionals, your mornings are precious.  Time is precious.  Get your kids ready (if you have them) and get yourself ready.  Then eat breakfast and rush out the door.  Because of the lack of time, people including myself sometimes neglect or shorten their morning skin care routines.  I bet a lot of men who are reading this sometimes even just roll out of bed, splash water on their faces, pat it dry, and then run out the door in the mornings.  So what is a good effective fast 2-minute routine to follow when time is an issue?
